NBA: Orlando Magic at Golden State Warriors

The Warriors are off to a great start, but they are certainly not getting complacent. They understand there is still work to be done and must focus on racking up the wins in a competitive Western Conference. Steve Kerr has this team playing great team basketball and each player has accepted his role.

Draymond Green has flourished as a starter this season, but when David Lee returns he might have to return to the second unit. Green is unselfish and will accept any role as long as it helps the team win. For coach Kerr, Green’s energy on the floor makes him the heartbeat of the team.

Our very own Jordan Ramirez caught up with Draymond Green after practice and asked him how he felt about coach Kerr calling him the heartbeat of this squad:

It’s amazing; I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t. I think it is amazing. What that means is that you got to bring it every single game because the day you don’t, “is the life there” so I just take it upon myself to try to bring some energy and that’s my role, one of my roles, on this team and I have to make sure I’m living up to my role.

Green is the ultimate team player and has embraced the role of being the heartbeat, which should be easy for the Michigan State Spartan. He’s always played the game with tremendous energy and the second round pick has not only become a formidable NBA player, but he’s due a nice contract at the end of this season.

Green is so versatile and will be a key component in the post-season. He’s improved every year he’s been in the league and is averaging 12.5 points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game. As long as he’s the heartbeat, the Warriors will be in great shape.
